Source: ZDNet A unique moment in history has begun as IoT and the fourth industrial revolution combine to evolve and shift the landscape of manufacturing. The ongoing digital transformation of manufacturing is having such a dramatic impact that it’s been dubbed the ‘fourth industrial revolution’. This revolution has just begun, but it is already changing…
by University of Vienna Austrian and Chinese scientists have succeeded in teleporting three-dimensional quantum states for the first time. High-dimensional teleportation could play an important role in future quantum computers. Researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the University of Vienna have experimentally demonstrated what was previously only a theoretical possibility. Together with quantum physicists…
Source: Tech Radar. By Satish Gannu 22 August 2019The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a merging of both information technology (IT) and operation technology (OT), combining business-critical technology with nation-critical infrastructure. Customers looking to move into IIoT all require and expect the strongest possible security, but the line is blurred when we discuss who…
Source: ZDNet A recent Tech Pro Research survey shows that industries recognize the value of IoT and are keen to adopt devices. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) adds significant value to businesses, and industries such as manufacturing, transportation, utilities and more, are taking full advantage of IIoT’s capabilities. In January 2019, Tech Pro Research surveyed professionals…
Source:TIBy Peter Flynn, business development manager, Communications Processors, TI The shared access model of the unlicensed Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) wireless spectrum bands has stood the communications industry in good stead for many years. However, it’s no surprise that additional bandwidth is desperately needed to meet the mounting tide of user demand. It’s time…
Source: hackaday.com Obviously, if the air filters in your home HVAC system are dirty, you should change them. But exactly how dirty is dirty? [Tim Rightnour] had heard it said that if you didn’t change your filter every month or so, it could have a detrimental effect on the system’s energy consumption. Thinking that sounded suspiciously…
Inspired by the open source initiative and to offer low-cost solution with non-constrained R&D flexibility, the TIPoT platform is developed based on free open source software, with the following notable features:
Low-cost hardware platform.
A variety of sensing and display accessories (current examples include light, temperature & humidity, sensing and LCD display).
Free, feature-rich Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
Free, feature-rich network protocol analyzer.
Open source operating system, Contiki (www.contiki-os.org), offers extensive design, research and development flexibility.
Arduino shield pinout compatible.
Software suite includes typical sensing, monitoring, and control application examples, as well as an end-to- end application framework, all using TCP/IPv6 protocol over IEEE 802.15.4.
Significantly lowers the cost for test/experimental R&D and/or prototyping on TCP/IPv6 over wireless sensor network.
